Etymology

A distinction between "hardcore pornography" and "borderline pornography" or "borderline obscenity" was made in the 1950s and 1960s by American jurists discussing obscenity laws "Borderline pornography" appealed to sexual prurience, but had positive qualities, such as literary or artistic merit, and so was arguably permitted by obscenity laws; "hardcore pornography" lacked such merits and was definitely prohibited In Roth v United States 1957 the government brief distinguished three classes of sexual material: "novels of apparently serious literary intent"; "borderline entertainment magazines, cartoons, nudist publications, etc"; and "hard core pornography, which no one would suggest had literary merit" Eberhard and Phyllis Kronhausen in 1959 distinguished "erotic realism" from "pornography"; in the latter "the main purpose is to stimulate erotic response in the reader And that is all" Most famously, in Jacobellis v Ohio 1964, Potter Stewart wrote:

I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description , and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so But I know it when I see it, and the motion picture involved in this case is not that

In Jacobellis v Ohio and other cases, the United States Supreme Court ruled that only "hardcore" pornography could be prohibited by obscenity laws, with the rest protected by the First Amendment The category of "borderline obscenity" thus became obsolete The 1970 report of the President's Commission on Obscenity and Pornography said:

ailers dealing in sexually oriented materials define "hard-core pornography" as "photographic depictions of actual sexual intercourse with camera focus on the genitals and no accompanying text to provide a legal defense" This, of course, is not a legal definition Some judges have employed the term "hard-core pornography" as a synonym for "material which can be legally suppressed" In this Report, the term is used as a synonym for "under-the-counter" or covertly sold materials This is, in effect, the definition of hard-core applied in the marketplace It can be argued that because of the confusion about the meaning of the term, which stems primarily from an undefined legal concept, it would be well to avoid the use of the term altogether There is one genre of sexually oriented material which is almost universally sold under-the-counter in the United States: wholly photographic reproductions of actual sexual intercourse graphically depicting vaginal and/or oral penetration A present, distinctions between materials sold openly and those sold covertly have become extremely unclear

From the 1970s, the salient distinction was between hardcore pornography and softcore pornography, which may use simulated sex and limits the range and intensity of depictions of sexual activities For example, William Rotsler's 1973 classification subdivided the X rating for erotic films: "The XXX-rating means hard-core, the XX-rating is for simulation, and an X-rating is for comparatively cool films"

History

See also: Stag film

The prehistory of modern pornography is the classical American stag film, also known as blue movies, a body of clandestine short pornographic films produced during the first two-thirds of the 20th century While the exact corpus of the distinctive stag film remains unknown, scholars at the Kinsey Institute believe there are approximately 2000 films produced between 1915-1968 Stag cinema is a form of hardcore film and is characterized as silent, usually filling a single reel or less, and was illegally made and exhibited because of censorship laws in America Women were excluded from these private screenings that were shown in American "smoker" houses such as fraternities or other exclusive institutions In Europe, films of the same kind were screened within brothels The mode of reception of the all-male audience of stag films was raucous, collective sexual banter and sexual arousal Film historians describe stag films as a primitive form of cinema because they were produced by anonymous and amateur male artists who failed in achieving narrative coherence and continuity within their diegesis Today, many of these films have been archived by the Kinsey Institute, however most are in a state of decay and have no copyright, real credits, or acknowledged authorship The stag film era inevitably ended due to the beginnings of the sexual revolution in the fifties in combination with the new technologies of the post war era, such as 16mm, 8mm, and the Super 8 American stag cinema in general has received scholarly attention first in the mid-seventies by heterosexual males such as in Di Lauro and Gerald Rabkin's Dirty Movies 1976 and more recently by feminist and queer cultural historians such as in Linda M Williams' Hard Core: Power Pleasure, and the "Frenzy of the Visible" 1989 and Thomas Waugh's Homosociality in the Classical American Stag Film: Off-Screen, On-screen 2001

Legality

Further information: Pornography by region On the set of a pornographic film

The distribution of hardcore pornography had been widely prohibited in many countries until the second half of the 20th century when many countries began to allow some dissemination of softcore material Supply is now usually regulated by a motion picture rating system as well as by direct regulation of points of sale Restrictions, as applicable, apply to the screening, or rental, sale, or giving of a movie, in the form of a DVD, video, computer file, etc Public display and advertising of hardcore pornography is often prohibited, as is its supply to minors

Most countries have eased the restrictions on the distribution of pornography, either by general or restricted legalization or by failure to enforce prohibitive legislation Most easing of restrictions has been by way of changes to the criteria of a country's movie classification system The anti-pornography movement often vigorously opposes legalization In 1969, Denmark became the first country in the world to legalize pornography In the US, legal interpretations of pornography in relation to the constitutional right to free speech differ from state to state and from city to city Hardcore pornography was legalized in the UK in 2000

Impact on society

Berl Kutchinsky's Studies on Pornography and Sex Crimes in Denmark 1970, a scientific report commissioned by the Presidential Commission on Obscenity and Pornography, found that the legalizing of pornography in Denmark had not as had been expected resulted in an increase of sex crimes

A study conducted in Denmark in 2003 and later published in Archives of Sexual Behavior found that men and women generally believe that hardcore pornography has a positive influence on their lives

United Kingdom

The Independent reported in 2006 that Nielsen NetRatings found that more than nine million British male adults used Internet porn services The study also reported a one-third rise in the number of women visiting X-rated sites, from 105 million to 138 million A 2003 study found that one third of all British Internet users accessed hardcore porn

United States

A 2005 study by Eric Schlosser estimated that revenues from hardcore porn match Hollywood's domestic box office takings Hardcore porn videos, Internet sites, live sex acts and cable TV programming generate US$10 billion, roughly equal to US domestic box office receipts
